This is an exquisitely carved antique Victorian period lava cameo in the form of a shell containing a flying cupid playing a lyre. The back has a simple old fashioned T hinged pin stem and C clasp. This carving is very 3 dimensional.
This brooch measures .625" x 1.5" and the carving alone is at least .25" thick.
Condition is good.
Sometimes the best things come in small packages - and this petite jewel is a masterful exhibition of the carver's talent to create such a detail piece in such small size.
